" 'I'm just a boy with a new haircut'
And that's a pretty nice haircut"- Pavement
Zahra cuts my hair and tells me about Morocco.
I make her laugh. So she tells me about the
time an elderly stylist cut off some guy’s eyebrows. She makes me laugh.
She teases my hair as she cuts it.
Making sure it’s just right. She says she loves Elvis.
Shes says who wouldn't.
She turns off the clippers so we can talk.
By the time she is done, she is proud of her work.
I ask for her card but realize I've taken out my phone.
I add a little something extra to her tip.
She unleashes me onto an unsuspecting world.
I feel fucken cool.I look fucken cool.
So far one person agrees.
